         BCF  Master Challenge and Summer Open                                                                                                                                          

History in the making. BCC, from the time of Pillsbury way back in the day, to the 21st Century, we are witnessing the first FIDE rated event of the Boylston Club in its very long and illustrious history.

[ Editor's not:  Bernardo Iglesias points out that while this is the first FIDE event held at the Somerville location, some rare events were FIDE rated both at Boylston and Clarendon.]
